I was trying to install nmap-7.12 on a Solaris server.  When i run: ./configure i get:
configure: error: you  version of openssl dos not support sha-256. Please install openssl 0.9.8 or later.  Is this really a requirement for nmap?
is there any other way to install nmap?

You likely do no have openssl installed at all.
Yes, the configure scripts verifies that all required software is installed.

One there was sunfreeware where one could get Solaris packages...........

get openssl, compile and then use that for nmap, though make sure you use static linking if you do not intend on installing openssl.
